Yawcam alternative for Debian


Hello, is there a motion detection camera app like Yawcam for Linux? If so, how hard is it to set up? Is there only one alternative or are there more?

"Motion" https://motion-project.github.io/
"Xeoma" https://felenasoft.com/xeoma/en/
"kerberos" https://www.kerberos.io/
"zoneminder" http://www.zoneminder.com/

Also, this is old, but may be of interest: http://www.eleceng.adelaide.edu.au/P...iondetect.html

I've not used any of those applications myself, but as a general tip for resolving build problems, add
2>&1 | tee build.log
to the end of your configure command so that it creates a log file. Then search through the log and note all errors and warnings.

Similarly, with the build command, append:
2>&1 | tee -a build.log
(the "-a" switch appends the "build.log" file).

Hello, I am also interested in installing such software in Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 64-bit. Except for those mentioned above, are there any other motion detection apps? I have Zoneminder working on Debian really well. This might be off-topic, but I thought I shouldn't create a whole new thread for it.
